The ekelund factory
At the Ekelund Factory building, we offer the opportunity for all of our customers to dream and imagine and create, and also to visualize what our Ekelund trade mark represent.
Walking through our entire Ekelund factory building starts at our museum where we display our first jacquard loom dating back to 1850. After the museum you walk down to the factory floor.
The ekelund museum
The museum explains our unique heritage surrounding the family Ekelund. It also describes the company which may be the oldest documented textile company in the world that is still in existence.
Our factory shop offers the entire collection of table linen, towels, runners, throws, dish cloths and more. We also have a section offering imperfect textiles, design samples, and discontinued patterns.
We offer our guests a pleasant cafeteria, serving bakery treats, open face sandwiches, and a daily lunch menu. We can seat 100 guests and when the weather permits, also offer outside seating.
